Italian Trulli

You made it! This is our 6th year of AnarCon. Founded in 2015 on the principles of radical inclusion to welcome everyone, self-reliance to promote the individual to discover liberty, self-expression to add your unique gifts to the experience, and communal effort to produce social networks that support a strong foundation for a growing tribe of liberation.

One way to participate is to help build the Honey Badger (our mascot) effigy to burn on Saturday night. It’s a group process for sure, and anyone can help! Look for Captain Kurt for where to start and if you have art you’d like to burn.

Be sure to pick up your free commemorative AnarCon cup at the Lysander Spooner’s Whiskey Brigade. Themed drinks at the bar are gifted away for free in memory of local champion of liberty, Daniel Grysen.

So bring your positive energy and your engagement. Leave no trace behind and use #anarcon for media shares!
